3x per week for a total of 7 hours.
What Helmet do you use?
A Hot Wheel red coloured one covered in stickers from Thought Bubble 2012 which we were lucky to be invited to attend

Vipers – again, good value for beginners but I’m sure I’ll upgrade in the future.
What were your first pair of skates?
Pink and white rio rollers which I wore to my first month of derby practise!!

My inspiring and massively talented team mates!
Any top tips for up and coming Derby Superstars?
Don’t be afraid to try – no one is born able to skate but it can all be learnt. As our coach Jerry Attric says “fear of falling makes you fall!”
